I was about to comment on the woosh that just flew over your head, but then I decided it was too much trouble.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
The highest by any publicly traded company, you mean. I'm pretty sure Saudi Aramco is at the top with annual profits estimated at a whooping $182 billion. Where else do you think the terrorists and the Bush family keep getting all that money from?
There ought to be bots scanning
You searched "Sony". Here are the names, SSN, and phone number of every Sony employee. Click here to sign them all up for hourly Cat Facts.
So what constitutes a "product" when it comes to software? Say Mozilla implement this new format for Firefox, does that mean Mozilla have to pay $0.20 to MPEG LA every time someone downloads a copy of Firefox?
In case you live under a rock, *BSD serves a third of the traffic on the internet.
The only major difference between MIT and Apache 2.0 is that the latter contains an explicit patent grant. I assume this is what you're referring to?
Are you saying Microsoft plans to pull a SCO in the future?
The problem is that with the US system, you cannot vote blank.
Just vote for a third party candidate. That amounts to the same thing.
Yes, it does:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Just FYI, the rule against illegal cartoons exists in the USA too. The Supreme Court struck down attempts to use CP laws in this way as being obvious nonsense, so Congress just went ahead and amended the law to make it explicitly illegal as opposed to implicitly illegal.
You apparently missed some important details. I have highlighted them for you.
Only half of the code has been released so far. This is supposed to be an open source software and hardware project and not a single schematic or Gerber file has been released so far.
That cancellation was itself cancelled after the ceasefire was announced. The sale is still going through.
That thing is:
1. High altitude
So is Facebook's proposed aircraft.
2. Not delivering payloads to customers
That's why the Facebook version has three times the wingspan at 60 meters, to carry the extra battery for nighttime operations.
Some of that info seems bogus. 10,000 CNC mills? Unlikely. 10,000 CNC machines of all types across all of Apple manufacturing, maybe.
I was skeptical too, but then I looked up the numbers and turns out 10,000 is actually an underestimation:
Foxconn, the Apple supplier that doubled factory pay after a spate of worker suicides, buys 800 programmable Robodrills from Fanuc every month - for about $62,000 each - to make the stainless steel band that wraps around the iPhone.
The Fanuc Robodrill is the world's common CNC machine measured by installation numbers and by total value thanks to Apple.
